    Hi, everyone! My name is Rebecca and I have recently become the loving mom of Lemon the Budgie. As Lemon is my first pet bird, I wanted to join this forum and add to all of the research I've already done. I've had him (possibly her) for two weeks now, and we seem to be getting along quite well...
  3. Your Budgie's Health
    Hi I just got a budgie for the first time about two weeks ago and I dont know if this is normal but I noticed my budgie has what look like bald patches under his wings and back (only visible when he stretches his wings).

    I know I should've adopted, but in my area none were available so I got him at petsmart. I have him covered right now, but he hasn't been doing much the last two days, really only sitting still. He freaks out when I have to change his food and water and I haven't seen him drink at all. Also his...
  8. Lost and Found
    Hello! I found a green budgie, this little fella, huddling outside my front door for warmth in NYC on Monday near midnight. He seems in good health, at least a year old, and I've been reading up on budgies like crazy to ensure however much time he spends with me is happy. We kept him in a...

    Hi, I had written my introduction late last night, but didn't have a very good picture of our babies. Today I set them in front of the window for natural light and made sure my camera flash was set to off. We are thinking the teal one is a male and the indigo one is a female, could anyone give...

    Hi, I recently got a new budgie, my first budgie, he's a blue and white coloured budgie who is called Joey. Anyway, right now I'm on school holidays so I can't spend pretty much all day with him but I was wondering, when I go back to school, should I put a mirror in his cage to sort of keep him...

    Hello! I'm new here- I got two budgies two days ago. I have been obsessing over them, lol. I want to make sure I'm doing everything right. Their names are Ruby and Nova. I had a parakeet named Peep years ago and LOVED her. My dad worked in construction, and she must've been someone's pet who...
  13. General Budgie Talk
    I thought I would join this forum as I am now an owner of two lovely budgies called Smuggler and Treasure! I think the wealth of information on the forum will really help with caring for them! I have been lucky enough to spend time with them since they were only weeks old, as my Dad's budgies...

    Hi everyone This is my first ever post so I really appreciate any expert advice you can all provide! I have decided to get a pet bird because it's the ideal pet that can come with me wherever I move to in the future. I have done a lot of research and narrowed it down to a budgie or a Parrotlet...
  15. General Budgie Talk
    Hello all! I am a new budgie owner and just joined the forum. I brought my two budgies home 3 days ago and they seem to be settling in well but I have a couple of questions. The younger and more outgoing one (I think he is a male but it is too early to be sure) took to me very quickly. He will...

    I am a first time owner of two budgies. I have had them for three weeks now. I have been offering them fruits and greens and so far they only want their bird seed. I will mix it in with the seed and they will eat around it. Any ideas on getting them to try new foods?:)

    Hi all, I am a brand new budgie owner and animal lover in general. I did a lot of research and reading, and brought home my new budgie 4 days ago. I think I'm doing all the right things to help him adjust. He seems to be eating, and will stretch out and preen a bit...but he's so quiet! And...
